Meet our dear friend and neighbor John Davey from Villa 6. On any given summer evening you can find him with his wonderful family kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, boogie or body boarding, or in this case fishing right out front of The Palms on the shores of beautiful Playa Flamingo.
A longtime native of the area, John has been dropping lines in these sacred waters for over two decades and has never had such a moment as on the 23rd of July. This is the time of year when the baitfish tend to surface near our shoreline and upon seeing this the whole family was into the water. Within a few casts on a silver crocodile lure he was able to nab a Rooster Fish standing right on the beach. Rooster Fish are native to Costa Rican waters and the prize of any fishing expedition, and in this case the fruit of a lifelong love affair with the ocean. Cheers John! Pura Vida embodied.

Here's a quick list of a few of our favorites from our friends over at 3rd Home:
Don’t look now, but there is a trend starting! More and more savvy real estate purchasers are looking at fractional ownership as a way to call The Palms home while they wait until the time is right to purchase an entire Villa.
Haki Stabinsky is living proof. He sat down with Mark Randall, The Palms Director of Real Estate, to discuss his love of Costa Rica, The Palms, and his decision to purchase a fractional interest first with a subsequent upgrade to his own Villa just last month.
Mark: What impressed you most about The Palms?
Haki: The beauty of the Palms attracted me at first sight; it exists in total harmony with the surrounding nature of the area. It still fills me with elation every time I stay there.
Mark: How did your family feel the first time they all came down together?
Haki: The consensus opinion among my wife, 3 children and 6 grandchildren is that there is no better place to enjoy a family vacation then The Palms.
Mark: I understand that you were going to build a home at Hacienda Piniella; why did you decide against it?
Haki: My family always desired to own at The Palms. After I realized that building a home in Hacienda Pinilla was both extremely expensive and came with too many headaches, it became much easier for me side with my family to own a villa at The Palms. It's the best decision we made.
Mark: How did you feel about being able to buy a fractional interest to spend time throughout the year at The Palms and then having the option to upgrade to purchase an entire Villa?
Haki: It demonstrated to me the fairness and kindness of the developer of the Palms.
Mark: How has Costa Rica and The Palms added to your quality of life?
Haki: First and foremost the effects of staying in Guanacaste on my health and psychology are magical. I attribute this to the combination of friendly weather, the healthy food, and the tranquil atmosphere in Guanacaste.
Mark: How do you feel about Guanacaste and the surrounding area of The Palms?
Haki: I consider it to be "My Small Little Paradise."
Mark: Why would you recommend Costa Rica and The Palms to your friends?
Haki: Through the eyes of my friends I am a living example of why they should consider Costa Rica, specifically Guanacaste, as the place to live when retired. When I return to my hometown they greet me with "Welcome from Paradise"

The Palms Costa Rica is proud to announce the full sale of two villas in our beachside community and one fractional ownership interest. Among the new members to our community, Nick Hill from Manhattan can’t wait to begin his new adventure from his Costa Rican beach home.
Nick notes, “We were intrigued as to what type of community The Palms actually was. It didn’t appear to be a hotel, nor did it seem a typical housing development. The grounds are extremely well manicured and beautiful and the layout of the villas showed the thoughtful planning of the owners in their development process. We had a look inside. What made our decision quick and easy was the whole package offered by The Palms. This was helped in no small part by the offer to stay for a couple of nights and see first hand all The Palms had to offer. It was hard to rival the location, beach, villa quality, wonderful staff and the “3rd HOME” benefits.”
Nick can’t wait to share The Palms and our unique way of life with all his friends and family back home in New York. “I think most people are very surprised by how beautiful the property is and similarly surprised at the high standard of service from the staff….our friends felt totally spoiled having the villa to themselves and being pampered for a week by The Palms staff. Having the option to do this for your good friends and family is a great feature of The Palms residency.”
This is a story we have heard time and again from our visitors. We know we are different and we believe we stand above the rest in Costa Rica. We are proud to welcome new members of our community to The Palms family of owners. PURA VIDA!
